This route is the most prominent feature at the small crag. It begins with a few stout, sequence-intensive hand jams and finger locks through a slightly overhung, right-leaning section before pulling over a bulge and into a straight-up fist-to-OW crack. The climbing eases significantly as the crack enters the dihedral; the route ends by topping out.

This 40ish-foot tall outcropping is home to a few routes that are not described elsewhere on MP to my knowledge. Please add any additional information (such as name of crag, name of routes, etc) as you see fit.

Visible clearly from the roadway, the main feature of this east-facing, narrow crag is a black-flanked, shallow dihedral with fist-crack that bisects the face. The left side of the rock is generally overhung. All routes are TR accessible by walking back around the west side, though you'll have to supply gear to build anchors as there is no fixed gear.

The rock can be slick in places and may have considerable lichen. The belay area below is flat and clean. While the spot can feel secluded, the proximity to the highway can create a little noise when cars pass.
